Video: The Tea Party vs. John Boehner

From Insty-Glenn.

I don't remember who said this originally but all politics are local. Sure, it might not be as sexy sounding as going to Washington DC for a rally or two but it does help serve it's purpose by making sure that a politician knows his base, donors and voters are keeping watch.

The Tea Party held a rally outside the Capitol Building today to demand that congressional Republicans demand significant cuts in federal spending. The outlook is bad. House Republicans are fighting to hold on to the $61 billion in spending cuts they approved in February, a mere rounding error in a budget totaling about $3.8 trillion.

Today's rally shows how the Tea Party has continued the fight to make itself heard in Washington. But in Ohio there's a new focus: local politics.
